: Teachers always want to share files. They tend to learn how to use USB keys to share things, which takes many extra steps. Eric Burns' proposal for publication and journal sharing was a way around this, and he got some feedback from Tomeu; we should encourage this (and documenting its implementation) actively.
Two issues come to mind : setting the interface for file-sending (and embedding it in Sugar), and determining how it works. Requests were for both a fire-and-forget transfer that is more like localmail of an attachment, and for oen that is more like a synchronous shared activity where you see the person you are sending it to.
